Try to help the wild plants proliferate further.
Never do any harm to animals that may be found during safari or camping.
Collecting waste materials resulting from the activities and dispose them of in the designated trash containers,
Keep the sand clean by not disposing of the burned coal and ashes on it
Minimize the quantity of leftover materials by using recyclable materials that can be reused many times.
Desert visitors have also been asked to enlighten and advise the members of their groups whenever negative behaviour is exhibited and enhance, boost and instil positive aspects in the minds of members of the group or family for making the trips mean more.
The awareness material specially warns not to throw broken glass, tin or plastic cans carelessly, citing that it will harm animals and human beings and may distort the general landscape and beauty of the area.
